According to The Daily Mail, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur are interested in signing Wolverhampton Wanderers midfielder Morgan Gibbs-White.

It has been reported that Championship club Wolves cannot hand him a new deal until he turns 18 in January.

This has led to Arsenal, Tottenham and Liverpool fighting for the signature of the 17-year-old midfielder, according to the report.

Advantage Tottenham Hotspur?

The teenager is a very talented and promising young midfielder who was part of the England squad that recently won the Under-17 World Cup.

Arsenal and Tottenham are two massive North London clubs, and it could be hard for the youngster to turn down the chance to join.

The Gunners, though, could be at a disadvantage. Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino has given chances to talented and promising players, and the youngster is likely to get more opportunities at Tottenham than he would at the Emirates Stadium.

After all, Arsenal still have the likes of Jack Wilshere, Theo Walcott, Per Mertesacker and Calum Chambers - players who are either simply not good enough to play for a top-four club, are past their best or are overrated and overhyped.

As for Spurs, the emergency of Harry Winks and the way Dele Alli has progressed show that young players can do great things under manager Pochettino.
